Printed Matter presents the twelfth annual NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1. Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines.
Last year featured over 370 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions, and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries, and was attended by approximately 40,000 visitors.
This year’s NY Art Book Fair will include an ever-growing variety of exhibitors – from zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history, plus the NYABF-classic Friendly Fire, focused on the intersections of art and activism. Other exhibiters and participants include Urbanautica, Nero, Dia Art Foundation, and Gagosian Gallery.
NY Art Book Fair will host an array of programming and special events, including The Classroom, a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions, for the eighth year running, as well as The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference (CABC), in its tenth year, featuring two full days of conversation on emerging practices and issues within art book culture.
